Categories: Authentic Devotion,Bible,Church

Key Verses

Galatians 2:20

Galatians 5:24

Romans 6:2-7

2 Corinthians 5:17

 

Summary

When we receive Jesus as Lord a radical and complete transformation takes place. The old you dies, the new you is resurrected.

We can often be duped into thinking that we’re still the ‘old us’, with our old behaviours and thought patterns. But the truth is, we are new creations.

As we learn to believe this truth, and surrender to who God says we are, we find we live more and more in our glorious new identity.

 

Questions to think about / for discussion in MC

  1. When I think of who I am, how do I tend to describe myself?
  2. What are some of the negative labels we have placed on our lives?
  3. In what ways do we live like the old identity and nature? Why is that?
  4. Are there any labels that God speaks over you that you really need to take hold of?
  5. How can we grow more into our true identity as children of God?
